My new DD

After 18 months of daily driving my white 4C ( one of the 10 first SE to be sold in the USA ) which gave me a lot of pleasure and smiles, now driving this little ABARTH which to my surprise also is a blast to drive. Does not get the attention of the 4C of course, but is more comfortable to drive a DD, can hear my favorite music on sirius etc, has extra seats ( albeit small ) for quick trips with family members and the exhaust sound ( you have to hear it to believe it ) . Overall very happy with my new ride.
P.S. Will not exclude AF in the near future. Four door sedans are not really my cup of tea. Waiting for something more exiting, maybe a coupe Giulia. Have to see the Stelvio in person, but again not very fond of SUV's. Had a great time on this forum and will tune in from time to time.

Congrats, and happy trails.
BTW, can't see the photo. (and no it is not because the forum saw that you sold your 4C, LOL).

Don't be a stranger here!

Stupidest mobile operating system (for business) I've ever used. I'm convinced it was designed by 12 year olds.
Can you tell I'm having a bad day?

You sold your 4C for an Abarth??? I have both and agree the 4C is a TERRIBLE daily driver and the Abarth is way easier for every day use.

I think this may eventually be a case of 'you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone'. Buy an Abarth to enhance 4C ownership but not to replace one! That ain't possible.

I have both, too, and mine is also red with black.mirrors and stripes. If I could only keep one of my cars, it would be the abarth.

Well at least your old car cover will keep mine cozy.

Hope to still run into you at future local events and Cars & Coffee.

My 4C is an AWESOME daily driver. If you have 2 kids at home it's probably not going to work so well. If you don't, why drive anything else? That's rhetorical BTW.
